Having never been to Hard Rock Live, it's was a little difficult to understand how the venue would work and what the views and acoustics would be like, etc. We weren't disappointed though. We got bar stools on the balcony to the left of the...More

Love the Hard Rock Live, it's a great small venue, bartenders are quick and ushers are courteous. Almost never a bad seat. Have been a few times before, just seems like they need to upgrade the sound system or tech. Strange that they have screens,...More

To enter Universal Studios or Islands of Adventure, yes, but for City Walk and Hard Rock, and numerous restaurants and stores in this area, no pass is needed.

Hi, my husband and I are going to see Joe Cocker in concert on Saturday, September 29 at the Hard Rock Live, Hollywood, Florida. Should we just take a taxi from our hotel in South Beach? How much do you think it might cost? We do not have a rental car. Any information you have would be greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance

reasonably priced hotel near hard rock Orlando... (14 Replies)
oh boy, questions...going to see Impractical Jokers with my son at Hard Rock Live Orlando. Looking for a reasonably priced hotel in a safe area close by just for one night. My limit is $250. Also, is Hard Rock Live located right inside Universal Studios? Will that mean we will have to pay the entry price to get in? Thank you in advance. I really appreciate your help. I know this is such a busy forum.

Cabana Bay is showing $219 for that night. About a mile away. Hard Rock is outside the theme park.
